Clarity of speech to make it does.

I’m toying with the idea of taking some continuing-ed copy-editing courses.

Researching my options, I am browsing the course catalogue at a reputable university (which shall remain nameless), when I find this.

This is the /first line/ in the description of their copy-editing course:

“Copy editors edit above all to communicate to readers.”

Do they?  How many copy editors were harmed in the construction of that sentence?
